Hi everyone,

in manual, in description of get_current_dir_name :
 "Only difference is that value of `PWD' variable
  is returned if this value is correct."

There is no further mention of this variable,
  so i presume you mean shell-variable ?
It might be nice to explicitly state that,
  or perhaps add a link to getenv(), if that is used to find value of PWD.
